i got an email saying my upload failed verification. I checked my md5 & it matches exactly with all the tracks. I know there are no errors on this recording. Mike Parillo said Brad LeBlanc should be able to sort this out for me. Please let know what to do. I used binary mode also. thanks

Something similar happened to me with a flac fileset once. Really puzzled me for a while. Turned out that one of the files had gotten corrupted between the time I'd compressed it and the time I made the md5s, so the md5 matched the bad file. And the fingerprint is just stored in the flac, so seemed to be ok too. It wasn't until I ran the flac integrity check ("flac -t" at the command line) that I discovered the bad file. I just deleted it, re-compressed the original, made a new md5 file and a new fingerprint file, and everything was fine.

It would be nice if the Archive gave you more details about non-md5-related errors - it would have saved me a lot of floundering - but oh well.
